High off the tails of the Nintendo Direct we have gotten yet another KOEI Tecmo related news piece to cover. Bandai Namco Games has announced that One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Deluxe Edition will be setting sail for the Nintendo Switch this May. May 11th for Europe (Physically/Digitally) and May 10th for America (Digital Only).
The Deluxe Edition includes all of the DLC that was released with the game back on PS4 and Steam, so get all of your Pirate slashings in one package to play on the go!
We have been playing the Japanese version of the game for quite some time now on the Switch, and a key thing we will need to point out is that the game itself runs great, but all online functionality is removed from the game. Just keep in mind this may end up being the same for the Western release too.
And to end this off, check out the launch trailer that came with this news attached below!
